The San Diego Humane Society got here to the rescue Monday after a special-needs canine fell almost 100 ft right into a steep, brushy canyon within the Sorrento Valley and could not get again by itself.

SDHS spokeswoman Nina Thompson stated the homeowners of the 8-year-old Australian shepherd, Hobo, known as the animal welfare company shortly earlier than 2 p.m. to ask for assist for his or her stranded pet, who’s deaf.

The group’s emergency response crew went to the household residence within the 9700 block of Genesee Avenue and used safety traces to sneak into the close by canyon the place the hobo was trapped.

“Then it took 5 members to chew the canine with a brush to get him free … earlier than they might get him again,” Thompson stated.

After safely rescuing Hobo, a course of that took about 4 hours, rescuers reunited him together with his relieved and grateful homeowners.
